Yes, it is. We have had a number of students who were not initially accepted into the Dance major focus very intently on their improvement in Ballet for their freshman year, re-audition in the spring term and join the Dance major their sophomore year.

Yes, if that is the case we encourage you to participate in our very popular Dance minor.
